“Being offered as-is. Has wear marks from usage and is in extremely good shape for its age (see photos). Keys have been tested and work well. Synthesizer sounds function normally. Stored in climate controlled smoke-free environment since 1987.” Link
“Casio CZ-1000 Synthesizer- Original owner. Programmable sought after vintage model. Never played outside the home. Good cosmetic condition though not perfect- does have signs of wear for its age. Always worked fine but haven’t played it in years. Don’t have the original adapter but have Radio Shack one. Went to turn it on and it doesn’t work. This may be an easy fix or maybe used for parts. ” Link
“The synth is still in working condition. Both volume & stereo chorus knobs are missing (but still can be moved along no problem) has some usage wear and minor scratching to the board. Has wear on the underside but no visible damage. No Box.” Link
“Perfectly working Casio CZ-101 synth with power cable and manuals. Fully programmable digital synth with midi capabilities. Has 8 waveforms, multiple 8-stage envelopes, and 8 note polyphony. Unique phase distortion sounds. 16 presets, 16 user patches. Mini keys. Plenty of sound examples on Youtube.” Link
It has been thoroughly tested for power & functionality – everything works! Was completely hooked up to an amp system and it works really good.” Link
The unit powers up and sounds great—clean, tinkly electric pianos, rich pads, deep basses. There are no onboard effects. I tested both the headphone and 1/4″ stereo outputs and all is well. There’s also an XLR/1/4” “Mix” out, which I’ve never used.
The chassis shows its age: plenty of rack rash and I also noticed one rust bubble on the top, which should be visible in the photos.
The unit will be well packed in a (non-original) box and shipped out asap.”
“Hello. Up for auction is a sweet little mini synth – the Casio CZ101. Works great – i’ve owned it for a few years and never had any issues. All keys work. Has some minor cosmetic flaws as would be expected for a synth of its age. The power plug is a little jacked – see pics – but works. Power adapter not included. Runs good on batteries; battery cover is included, batteries not included. Still has the side attachments – strap it on and rock out! Memory cartridge included as a bonus. Like all vintage gear – sold as is – but guaranteed not to be DOA. I tested everything and even videoed it in action before listing.” Link

“Thanks for viewing this auction. Here is a great find. It is a vintage synthesizer keyboard, model is CZ-101, manufactured by Casio. Take a look at the pictures and judge this one for yourself. Keyboard comes to you in used but good condition for the age. Keyboard powers up, lights illuminate when buttons depressed and LCD display shows well. I am no expert with this particular keyboard so I am guessing that it has no internal speaker system. I plugged this one into my guitar amp and I was impressed. Keyboard sounds out nicely and I was able to play music with it. I was also able to rotate the knob/dial on the left and make siren like or distort the sounds. I do not know how to fully operate or program this one so I cannot guarantee that everything functions as it should but from what I was able to do and for the condition, I would be making a guess that it does. On that note, so to speak, I am offering it as is. All keys are present and depress/release nicely. Battery compartment located on the backside. Compartment door is present and intact. it opens/locks closed as it should to secure batteries. Unit powers with 6 D cell batteries and I will include a fresh set if you are the winning bidder. Feel free to email me with any questions. I will be happy to answer. Whether you collect this type/brand of item or just looking for a great synthesizing keyboard, look no further. This is the one you want.”
“A blast from the 80’s! One of the earliest digital synthesizers made, with mini keys, guitar strap pegs, battery power. But it is professional quality for this time period, and a great way to learn about programming and digital synthesis.
I bought this new and played it quite a bit during the mid 1980s. It’s been in a closet ever since, but I’ve pulled it out, put in 6 fresh D batteries, and started having fun again. It appears that everything still works – it’s an oldie so it has a few scratches on it but overall it looks pretty good. It does not have the power adapter but does run on batteries if you’d like or you can buy a cheap one anywhere. The only issue I’ve discovered is the volume slider is a little scratchy/ fuzzy when sliding up or down, but probably just needs to be cleaned well.” Link
“The synthesizer comes on and buttons seem to work but I do not know if it is fully functional. Missing a button in modulation section, see picture.” Link
Amazing Piece Of Equipment!!” Link

Manuals and Power Supply – all original
Excellent Condition (see photos)
Purchase years ago early 80’S for my children after reading electrical engineering article on Digital sound synthesis.
Hardly used – kids not interested it just sat in a drawer for over 20 years. Note the keyboard case is near pristine – wear on lettering about nonexistent.
Manuals like new – doubt keyboard ever programed – no batteries used ever.
To check functions – all presets work – note took photos with different settings to show lights working. Wheel changes pitch – programing changes show on LCD screen. Sounds are great (the bass sounds like the “Seinfield show music” ) organ is nice and are all the others. All keys work and you can transpose – as a non-musician it seems to work perfectly to me.
Case has very little scratches and no cracks – will ship with robust packing.
The keyboard is small – only saw one used — by the keyboard player with a jazz group Weather Report. Nice and portable.” Link
“Up for auction is a Casio VZ-10M Professional Digital Synthesizer that is in nice shape. The buttons and controls feel solid and responsive. The display is nice and clear.

“Hallo verkauft wird eine absolute rarität von Casio Kx-101 Boombox,leider fehlt die rechte Box .Habe das Keyboard getestet das funktioniert einwandfrei ,Kassettenlaufwerk konnte ich nicht testen da ich keine Kassette mehr habe.Die Boombox ist heute so rare da der Preis damals extrem hoch war (1200 DM) .” Link
HOWEVER: There are cracks in the plastic on two corners as you can see in the photos. Nothing structural, because everything but the corners is heavy metal. A little JB-Weld would easily take care of the this minor cosmetic issue.
A bigger problem are several stuck/unresponsive keys in the last octave. Specifically, keys 54, 55, 57, 59 and 60 are either stiff or don’t spring back.” Link
“Great condition, no power adapter,works great.” Link
“Up for sale is a great vintage 80’s synth. The Casio CZ-101 Cosmo Synthesizer is a great little synth used by many musicians. This unit comes with the original carrying case and manual. The power adapter is not included, but it runs fine on battery power.
The unit could use a good cleaning, and as noted in the photos there is one key that sticks when pressed.” Link
“Casio CZ-101 Synthesizer (for repair).
Comes with AC-DC adaptor.
Unit is being sold as is. There is significant corrosion damage to the battery slot.” Link
“Fantastic vintage synthesizer in excellent condition. Does a killer phase modulation sounds, can go from metallic and cold to warm and fizzy. Two redesigned CZ-101 sound engines (like getting two higher quality CZ-101 or CZ-1000s!) are inside this keyboard with doubled polyphony and many improvements (such as large keys and buttons, doubled on-board preset and user patch memory and cartridge format, normal modulation wheel with a special on/off switch, analog adjustable stereo chorus, internal power supply, can load/edit and play CZ-101 sounds, easy to understand and create new sounds (thanks to one-button press menus and front panel’s logic). This is universal power model (its special voltage selector switch must be changed to a voltage available in a given country), featuring a very rare display upgrade (the display’s background color is dark blue, but phone camera makes it look like what you see on photos). Card slot works fine. Original Casio long power cable is included.” Link
This classic mid-80’s synthesizer is in full working order. In excellent condition despite it’s age and functions well. It’s an authentic retro instrument. ” Link
“Missing the battery cover. Only thing I couldn’t get to work is the mic for sampling, but you can sample with the line in port though. (I don’t know if I was doing it right or if it was broken)But everything else is good and works. All input and output work. Comes with official Casio AC adapter.”
I’ve owned this from new but haven’t used it in a while.
It now doesn’t power up but I don’t know why so I must sell as for parts/not working.
Includes power supply, which has slightly split cable at mains end.”
